Is this a good system?

I'm building my first computer and I'm wondering if all these parts are compatible. I'm buying all these from NewEgg. I'm also needing a cooler (heatsink/CPU fan), case, and HDD. Can anyone recommend any parts?
Thanks

  1. At first glance yes these are all compatible.

    as for recommendations, what is your max budget and then your preferred budget ?

    i can recommend parts to you once i know thats, also will you be doing video editing or just pure gaming?
  2. I'll be doing both video editing and gaming; I think the pc will have a Windows Experience Index of 7.8.
    My Max is probably $900−$1000 and my preferred is $850. I can skip the BluRay Drive; I don't really need that.
  3. I'm thinking about getting either Corsair or Patriot as my SSD

    Thanks, could you recommend a case? I don't have one yet.
  6. I don't have a case preference. I saw the Bitfenix Survivor but that one looked a little small lol besides, I saw that last year and it doesn't appeal to me that much.
